Cut down on energy consumption by turning off the lights of businesses & office buildings when they are closed.
Every time I travel down the road at night in the city of Houston, I am amazed at how much energy is being pumped into those nicely, sculpted buildings with the crystal clear windows at night. At night, when absolutely no one is in them.
Yes, yes, yes, I am a realist and I know crime is probably one of the reasons we keep on all of these decorative lights on our downtown buildings, our malls, grocery stores, and gas stations (while we sleep)... But maybe we can think of some other way to save that energy at night?
And yes, yes, I know not all of us are sleeping at night, many of us that live in the city are working, but I really think we could be a little more conservative in that area.
